Hello everyone, I learned so much about Civ 4 in my last few threads - I wanted to ask you all to consider which of the characteristics are strongest and weakest. Usually I thought that financial and organized were the best, but I have also discovered the power of expansionist, and industrious. I have not been impressed with protective (relying on city defenses has not paid off for me) or imperious (lots of settlers is great, but the upkeep cost becomes a problem). Creative is an interesting one, but getting an early library doesn't seem like such a big deal as to make it worth foregoing another trait that does a bit more. I'm also not impressed with charismatic or aggressive, since it seems like getting your Civ up and running is more important than your soldiers having a little boost to their combat ability. Spiritual is another interesting one, more because you can get Buddhism or Hinduism early because of how the techs are. But again, the ability to swap civics with no anarchy is actually quite powerful. Do I have it all wrong because I'm a noob? What do you think?
